    OT #1 - Favorite Grill/Summer Recipes

    Post your favorite grill/summer food on here.

    Want to really utilize my grill this summer but need some ideas.

    I love Grilled Buffalo Chicken Breasts.

    Recipe:
    However many breasts you want.
    For the marinade, mix together a Buffalo sauce mix (I use Moores, Franks or another work great), Basil, Cayenne Pepper, Crushed Red Pepper, and any other spices you may desire.

    Let marinate for at least an hour, the longer the better.

    Grill and if you want, throw a piece of swiss (or your choice) cheese on for the last minute.

    Simple, but I love it.

    Re: OT #1 - Favorite Grill/Summer Recipes

    My wife and I basically use our grill every night from April through October. We do every sort of meat on there from burgers and brats to center cut ham slice or steaks or pork loins or tenderloins. What I really love from the grill is the various vegetables. We throw some asparagus on about every night this time of year. We also do a lot of random veggies in a grill pan where we just throw in some potatoes, onions, green pepper, mushrooms, etc

    Those center cut ham slices you can get for a decent price at Fareway and they grill up quickly. My wife makes a red plum sauce to put on it that has red plum jam, cinnamon, mustard and a little lemon juice.

    Re: OT #1 - Favorite Grill/Summer Recipes

    Since nobody else in contributing, another one of my favorites that is pretty easy:

    beer brats

    1. Buy some regular brats at fareway meat counter
    2. In disposable aluminum grill pan, put you brats in there, fill it 3/4 with your beer of choice (natural light adds nothing so put something with some flavor in there) and add some chopped up onion
    3. Let them soak a while
    4. Put pan on the grill and basically cook the brats through while they are in the beer bath
    5. Pull the brats out of the beer and grill them normally for a couple minutes to put grill marks on them
    6. Eat 2 because they are awesome

    Note: It's painful to have it sitting there, but I have a six pack of Sam Adams Octoberfest waiting for doing beer brats.

    Re: OT #1 - Favorite Grill/Summer Recipes

    Deer backstrap.

    Thaw it 3 days in advance. Put the following dry rub on:
    Cumin
    Chili powder
    Garlic salt
    Black pepper

    Then make a marinade of the following:
    Olive oil
    Red wine vinegar
    Rosemary
    Penzey's Sunny Paris seasoning
    Cavender's

    Rub the backstrap, and then let it marinate for two days. Use indirect heat on the grill and make sure it's still rare on the inside. I started cutting the deer into medallions before rubbing/marinading, and it's a lot easier to cook it quick, and each little chunk is just a flavor burst.

    It is, without doubt, the best thing I've ever made.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I like all the usual stuff, but here's an unusual one: beets. I slice them with the food processor, throw 'em in a bowl with some olive oil, salt, and pepper, and then lay 'em down right on the grill. Leave them there until they're lightly charred then flip them and do the same.

    Tape worms from a steak? Perhaps you need to find a new butcher.

    Grilled fajitas. We do it once a week with garden peppers, onions, and tomatoes from Mid July on.
    Kind of cool to see the grill pan have all Iowa (we buy local beef) food in it.

    He seasons his steak with manure and the insides of pig intestines. It needs to cook at least a minute on each side.

    I hate the fact that Ted Nugent has single handedly changed the name of Deer Loins to backstrap.

    I grew up in Nebraska and we've always called them that.

    Re: OT #1 - Favorite Grill/Summer Recipes

    I love everything on the grill. We've been doing pizza a lot recently. Also if you like garlic bread, try it on the grill and you never make it in the oven again. It's better when you make the garlic butter but frozen works well too.
